> most of the modern boxing techniques are slight variations or straight identical to pugilism, stop sperging faggots
That’s why I said “train normal boxing and stop being autistic.” There’s no shot you’ll get the same quality of training studying at some niche school then you will at a modern competitive gym and quite frankly the techniques aren’t all that different, so just train the thing that’s actually available. If you want to study weird pugilism mabuals from the 1800s on your own more power to you but you probably won’t have a clue what you’re reading if you don’t have some base boxing experience first.

To the real Skateboarders, stay true :
"When you were younger and skating with all your friends, did you ever think you'd get sponsored?", Cardiel replied:

"No, not at all. It wasn't about getting sponsored, it was about skating. If you constantly think about getting sponsored, the only reason you're skating is to get on a team. It just worked out for me. I think the majority of skaters who are sponsored weren't really thinking about it all the time. They just wanted to get away from home and skate."

All HAIL CARDIEL.

why didn't you just post this in the general

Hear me out. Manly nerds forge large beyblades out of steel folded a thousand times with razor sharp edges and sit in a circle with other players. They launch the beyblades using power tools and whoever gets hit with the stray bey blade is out. Last man standing without lethal cuts is the champ.

I've heard of that. A guy I did judo with back in the day had to stop because his doctor didn't like the rapid changes in velocity from being thrown. You could maybe do a weapon art like fencing or kendo? Fencing especially doesn't involve getting walloped.
>>
>>113445
>>113454
You could also do something like bjj and only flow roll. You’re unlikely to take a strong blow to the head. Hell, even with something like boxing you don’t HAVE to spar unless you want to.
>>
>>113508
yeah. plan is, im gonna be joining a place that does kickboxing and bjj and mma, because its basically the only place here, and probing to see how things will work for me if i either dont do any sparring at all, or hopefully get comfortable enough in knowing that in a light sparring only thing that it will be upheld. and then bjj should be okay. the best i can hope for i guess. spent my whole life trying to wipe away my extreme weakness when i was a teen, and succeeded, and now they tell me im weak and vulnerable no matter what i do. ill probably become a gun autist who never leaves the house. joy. living in the city taught me to be afraid of other people
>>
>>113445
ah i see, i'm shortsighted myself and didn't realise what it's like to have extreme shortsightedness. I'm guessing you're really set on training MMA or some form of striking but I really think you should give bjj a go. bjj sparring, especially if you do it in the gi, is much more methodical and "slow", that it's hard to accidentally hit someone in the head unless the sparring intensity is like 100%. no gi is much more dynamic and you probably get hit in the head accidenatlly.
>>
>>113536
yeah, youre right. maybe i need to watch a lot of bjj propaganda. maybe i can trick myself into getting really interested in it. threshold for high myopeia is a diopter of -4, i have -7 in both eyes so prolly not good eh

I want to convert this old pool foundation in my backyard into a little area I can skate, I’m tired of driving to my park.

Since I can’t use concrete, because this isn’t approved by the landlord, I’d need some type of plywood/Masonite. I was thinking about buying a ramp kit for some mini qps and just using a sheet of wood to make a makeshift mini ramp.

Right now I’m cleaning out the area. What do U guys recommend for a build that can be easily removed/destroyed?

>What is HEMA?
HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts, sometimes also called Historical Fencing.
It's reconstructing how to fight with swords, daggers, polearms and other weapons based on old European fighting treatises

squats, train explosive strength. But also posture, are you leaning forward or back? Ideally you center of gravity is always nicely centered between your legs, like sitting down on a stool. If you aren't leaning on either one of your legs, it's much easier to change your direction.
>>
>>115991
Strong overhead hits, while unpleasant, aren't that dangerous because we're built pretty well for taking them. The mobility/bulk tradeoff of going full great bascinet isn't worth it for swords, perhaps with polearms.

I was thinking of something closer to an armet, but lighter and with more mesh for visibility and ventilation. the important bit is that there's a semi-circle sort of base that can rest on the shoulders or trapezius to be more precise.

No but it’s pretty clear that the “street fighter” isn’t just some noob off the street he’s got good footwork, hands in a good position, and a great sense of distance. Nevermind the fact that literally all of his strikes landed exactly where he wanted them to.
